    For the last several months, political troubles have plagued both Nujelím, and Moonglow. These tensions were brought to a head, recently, when a representative of Moonglow accused Nujelím of piracy. The Sultanís Vizier responded with a similar accusation of espionage.

According to sources within Moonglowís government, the accusation was made after a link between the infamous Pirate Captain Diego, and the Sultanís court was discovered. Unfortunately, Captain Diego was slain before he could be questioned, shortly after a raid on the isle of Verity.

The Sultan of Nujelímís Vizier was not reachable for comment - however, this official statement was received by messenger :

ďSources close to both the Sultan, and Moonglow, have fingered the mages in playing a hand in recent domestic affairs within the Sultanís court. These troubles have ranged from instigating rebellion, to the recent death of Gloria, one of the Sultanís favored nieces. The accusations of Piracy are entirely false, no doubt an attempt to call attention away from Moonglowís hostile, and illegal actions against the Sultan.Ē

The political situation was further worsened after a dignitary from Moonglow was executed by Nujelím during trade negotiations. Nujelím alleges that the dignitary was a spy. Moonglow denies the accusation.

More details as they develop.
